Use afterburners. I made the same sorta thread earlier i sucked couldn't even take off! now its so good. hover mode rapes ground troops and getting behind jets and choppers with hear seekers they have no chance!

FUCK the F35! this thing cant fly for shit.. it gets out manuvered by the su-35 soooo easily!!! Im not going to say that im the shit at flying but I def. get atleast 2 kills everytime im in the jet but this thing just cant keep up with the other jets. Using the hover mode is pretty sweet but it makes you a sitting target for everyone!

Good to know! I drove off the deck a few times and only use it when I spawn on the full length airstrip one.

My only problem with e F-35 is the same problem I have with all the aircraft...I'm a terrible pilot!

Lol!! I have tried to fly this thing twice..it wasn't pretty. I think I went straight up in the air as soon as I got off the ground, and then as you can guess..straight down into the ground. It's really pathetic..lol

Hovering will only help if you have a good sight on an anemy from a decent height, otherwise I would try to learn to properly fly so you can try and take down another jet with heat seekers.

I do know how to fly, it's not like I crash on take off or lose control in the air. The problem is that without unlocks, I'm left trying to machine gun enemy pilots which doesn't work that well. Or maybe it would work, if every enemy pilot didn't have heat seekers unlocked. Sure, I can break target locks sometimes, but most of the time I get nuked.

Same here. Jets would be so much better if it were even remotely possible to put up some kind of defense from the start. it seem more often then not as soon as I am in the air I get locked and shot down.

Fighting on the ground when the enemy has more unlocks is at least doable. You can flank and maneuver around with a squad to even the odds but when you are in a jet it s pretty much 1v1 and if they have anything unlocked you stand almost zero chance.

In all the time me and my friends have been flying jets, probably 3 hours between us, the only points have been by total accident. I was on Wake Island and an enemy happened to run in front of the hanger as I was leaving. Great roadkill but unfortunately not something to rely in for building points.

I would agree with this if only for the shitty turning radius the F-35 has, I think it's severely behind the normal jets in dogfighting ability.

I have to say the F-35 sucks, I tried learning to fly a jet for the past few days using the F-35 and no luck. I get in another jet on a non BTK map and within a few minutes I get the hang of it. Only issue is trying to get a kill when you only have guns lol.

I've done that numerous times, but all I get is "Bad Luck".

Which one are you taking? If it's the one that's right at the edge, facing the main map, then use LT to hover up and once you're at a decent altitude hit RT to begin accelerating.
The F-35 is a VTOL aircraft. That stands for vertical take-off and landing aircraft.

As for getting kills with the thing, that's another story. It's a crap jet in comparison to the counter-parts on the map. Far too sluggish and lazy for my liking.

I can't fly for shit in this game. I wish there was a flight simulator mode where you can practice flying so you can learn what the hell you're doing.

You could just join an empty server and figure it out... BF3 is no flight sim and jets are the easiest aircraft in the game to learn. You'll figure it out.

Neither can I, if you have End Game VIZIONZ, Air Superiority lets you get a handle on them pretty good too. Not the F35 specifically, not sure which jets are used in that mode, Flanker and Hornet?

But I've gone from a scant 5 to 36 kills on the Maverick assignment pretty quick and am a lot more confident in them now. No more crashing into the ground after 30 seconds
